*Edit*.. . .. . wow... 4 years, really? I'll try to stick this on from sooooo long ago, and start updating a bit more readily...
So I've run into some free time having now finished some work on our home, and wanted to take a stab at the 11 Second Club competition for this month. I'll post it here once the voting for the competition is over. I don't know if there would be any issues if people associated this entry with me before voting. So check back in early January to see it.
I decided to try out the Morpheus Rig (Morphy) by Josh Burton. It took me a little while to figure out all the ins and outs of it, but it seems to be pretty robust, and by far the best free rig I've found online for doing animation exercises with. You should definitely check it out if you get the chance. AND... watch the videos about the rig too before you get going!!! It'll save you a lot of time and frustration.
It felt really good to try and get back into acting with a character. That's something that I've been really missing in my hustle and bustle of game animation. Anyway, check back in a bit to see the update. Should come online sometime after the 4th or so... I think voting takes the first 3 days of the following month.
